There are many reasons I bring my dog to work but the overriding one is that she (Sedona) makes people feel more relaxed, less stressed, and less anxious. Kids enjoy getting to play with her after their adjustment and she keeps them busy while their parents are getting their adjustment. Lots of loving is shared between Sedona, kids, and adults. Many want to take her home with them, but we remind them we know where they live. LOL
Studies Show Dogs Are Stress Removers
Sedona loves people of all ages and greets every patient with a wag of the tail and a smile. Smile? It looks that way at least. You can feel the stress wash away from people as they pet and talk to her. Not surprising since there have been numerous studies on the effects of animals in doctors’ offices, nursing homes, hospitals, funeral homes, and other stressful environments. They all show that people feel less anxious about their situations when they have the unconditional love of a dog.
Decrease Multiple Stressors In One Visit
The body is affected by chemical, physical, and emotional stresses. It is necessary to combat all three for optimal health. Sedona helps to reduce the emotional/mental impacts of stress. Between her and us providing an atmosphere of joy and acceptance along with your adjustment, you are addressing more aspects than just the physical in our office.
